Voltaique Panoramique Volume 1: Popular Music In Ouagadougou [coll] – [Kindred Spirits]

Cousin Mary   11/6/2013   12-inch, International

Upper Volta – now known as Burkina Faso – produced a lot of popular music in the 1960’s and 1970’s, mostly on 7″ 45’s. Influences are local, French pop, American, and from neighboring countries in Africa. Nice guitar, vocals, brass, and keyboard work. Mostly toe tapping, danceable beats with some more melancholy sound on side D. Fascinating!
